Abstract

The U.S. Coast Guard identified the problem of passenger vessels becoming overloaded due to increased passenger weight. Our project goal was to recommend an effective method that would allow vessel masters to know if their vessel has exceeded its maximum allowable weight. Through background research and interviews with people in the industry, we established twelve possible solutions to the problem. We recommended four solutions to help avoid passenger vessel overloading.
